What does text clean do?
There are three main options, at the moment — watch our blog for future updates. Use the three checkboxes separately or together to clean your text is various ways:
- The Clean Text checkbox will convert many characters to text safe equivalents and strip all High ASCii characters that can cause formatting issues when copied from program to program.
- The Clean Paragraph checkbox removes extra spaces and lines.
- And finally, the Remove HTML checkbox will strip out most HTML tags and leave the content. It also converts HTML entities to text equivalents.
